Avengers #500 Double Splash Page By David Finch At Auction

Avengers #500 by Brian Bendis and David Finch was the beginning of the Avengers Disassembled storyline, that saw the Scarlet Witch go mad (again), kill and control a bunch of people (again) and end up rewriting reality completely (again). This included control of her husband, The Vision (again) who she got to do terrible things (again).
